This article is a critical evaluation of the workflow within a film- and paper-based imaging department. It also illustrates how all the factors culminate to produce poor patient care and decreased productivity. Practical examples are provided within the Tygerberg Hospital scenario. The effect of international trends on the workflow within an imaging department of the future is described. Lastly, the reasons why an integrated PACS-RIS (Picture Archiving and Communication System - Radiological Information System) solution can provide a solution for the future is discussed.
